NASA’s Human Research Program (HRP) has released solicited research response area NRA NNJ15ZSA001N-AGBR “Physiological and Behavioral Responses in Humans to Intermittent Artificial Gravity during Bed Rest” that solicits research in support of HRP goals and objectives. This response area is Appendix G of the Human Exploration Research Opportunities (HERO) NRA (NNJ15ZSA001N).

NASA is soliciting investigations focusing on the physiological and behavioral responses in humans to intermittent artificial gravity during 60 days of head-down tilted bed rest. Proposals selected in response to this solicitation will be conducted in the :envihab bed rest module and will make use of the :envihab short-arm centrifuge located in Cologne, Germany at the German Aerospace Center Institute for Aerospace Medicine.

Appendix G of the HERO NRA and associated documentation can be found at: Step-1 proposals are due on January 4, 2016. Step-2 proposals are due on March 7, 2016.

The HERO NRA including all open appendices is available through the NASA Research Opportunities homepage at:

All categories of United States (U.S.) institutions are eligible to submit proposals in response to the NRA. Principal Investigators may collaborate with universities, Federal Government laboratories, the private sector, and state and local government laboratories. In all such arrangements, the applying entity is expected to be responsible for administering the project according to the management approach presented in the proposal. For this solicitation, proposers from the U.S. are strongly encouraged to include international partners from countries supporting space agencies that participate in the International Space Station Program. NASA’s policy is to conduct research with non-U.S. organizations on a cooperative, no exchange-of-funds basis.

This email is being sent on behalf of HRP and is intended as an information announcement to the research community related to the NASA Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD) Human Research Program (HRP).

Thank you for your continued interest in NASA. Please refer to the solicitation document for contact information.
